FIRST IMPRESSION: The Lorac Pro Palette

This entry is all about an eye shadow palette that I’m obsessing over, and it’s the LORAC PRO PALETTE. (If you haven’t figured that out yet with the title. Hehe). 
 
I’d just like to give my first impression on the palette, but I won’t go into details on the shades.


image


To start off, the Lorac Pro Palette has 16 eye shadows - eight of which are matte shades, and the other eight are shimmers. It has a versatile color combination, which makes it possible to come up with various looks just by using the palette alone, be it barely there looks and all out smokey eyes.

To give you an idea how the colors look on medium skin tone, here are the swatches:

These are the matte shades. From left to right, the shades are: WHITE, CREAM, TAUPE, LIGHT PINK, MAUVE, SABLE, ESPRESSO, BLACK

White and cream look similar, with only a slight difference. Espresso is perfect as an outer V color to add depth to the eyes. It’s one of my favorites. But my ultimate favorite out this bunch is definitely MAUVE. It’s color payoff is amazing.

Here are the shimmer shades (L-R) - NUDE, CHAMPAGNE, GOLD, LIGHT BRONZE, PEWTER, GARNET, DEEP PURPLE, SLATE

Like white and cream, nude and champagne appear similar. However, their difference is noticeable in IRL, with champagne having slight peach / beige color to it. 

An intriguing color here is Garnet. I like its bronzy and rosy undertones and I can’t wait to use in for my future videos. 

My favorite from this bunch has got to be DEEP PURPLE. It’s just the perfect shade for the eyes’ outer V. 


THE VERDICT - LOVE IT OR HATE IT? 


All in all, I love this palette for its versatility, for its superb color payoff and pigmentation, and for not having ridiculous amount of fallout, which I’ve been having a lot with the Naked 2 (Will blog about that soon). Again, just by using this palette, one can create diverse eye looks. 

 Aside from the favorites shared above, I do have other faves from this palette, which are the colors I used for the eye makeup that I came up when I first played with this palette.

Meet the faves: Champagne, Light Bronze, Deep Purple, Mauve, Espresso, Taupe


As I was saying, I was supposed to come up with a makeup tutorial on the first look that I came up with using this palette, but dear camera didn’t cooperate, so I’m sharing some selfies instead. 

Basically, I went for pinky / rosy / neutral look, which I matched with a pink lipstick.

I’ve explained more about which shades I used where for this look on my vlog entry.

Again, I’m giving this palette two thumbs up. I’m actually liking it more than the NAKED palette. If it weren’t for Naked’s Sidecar and Half-baked, I’d probably say that you can do without the Naked palette if you have the Lorac Pro. :-)

Hope you guys enjoyed this entry. Do visit me on YTube, if you have an account there. (My channel has a  weird URL: http://youtube.com/user/whoeveriam0123)

Til my next entry!

New Section Alert! :)

Thought I’d do another category for my vlogs, and this one’s called “What I Got in the Mail Today.”

This section, or should I call it tag, is all about short videos featuring the package that I recently received - be it for free from sponsors, or from an online purchase. :)

I should have started this category weeks back. But what the hey! It’s new and I’m loving it! :-)
